Wow!  This is the first time I received a Japanese mail from
non-Japanese speaker.

Everyone, please notice the header of

from Werner's mail.  (This mail will have the same header
since I cited the Japanese characters.)

BTW, you may be right, since I am not an expert on typesetting.
However, I prefer fixed-width ideograms even for such cases.
I have never seen any printed matters with non-fixed-width
ideograms even for such cases.

I have seen the book at a few bookstores (not translated in Japanese
yet).  Though I am interested in it, the book is too thick for me...
(Even if the book were in Japanese, it would be heavy for me.)
